Self confidence

Another important one is self confidence. This is good for an entrepreneur because if you have no idea what you're doing or you don't feel confident in putting your idea forward, you'll fall short. You must make sure you're certain in carrying out your business idea because without confidence in yourself, no-one will be confident to buy anything from you or be wanting to get employed.

We're still going!

Planning is key. Without a plan, you're idea will be worthless as you haven't thought it through enough. A good plan will lead to a good idea then a good business, so on and so forth. So get writing! Just take from what's in your head and put pen to paper as well as expand on it.

Communication

Another key skill is communication. You need your voice to be heard as well as everyone else's. You don't want to be left in the dark. It's your idea, business and its your decisions that you're going to make. You're the one that is going to make the difference for yourself and everyone around you, whether their your employees or customers. You are the boss!

Self-reliant

Don't just rely on your employees or customers to get the money! It's up to you as well. As it's your business as well, you need to rely on yourself. You're the one that's going to make most of the decisions, tough or not. Everyone around you is just there to help you go the right way in your business. You've probably wanted to be a businessman/woman since you were a kid. If so, your idea has been sitting there in your heart and soul for a long time. Now its time to release it from its cage and make a difference for yourself and the world.

Leadership

You're the boss of your own business. You've got your employees under your belt. To make sure your business succeeds, you need to know what you're doing and to lead everyone else to getting the job done everyday. Your idea is sitting in the back of your mind and now you want to bring it closer and out to the world. So lead everyone to make your dream come true, and possibly theirs too.

Innovative

To be innovative is great. Your idea could possibly give ideas for other entrepreneurs starting out. Innovation is key because you can show the world that there are endless possibilities that they can use for their own business. Honestly, innovation is the best trait you can have because not only are you making your own business known but you're also giving other people ideas so they can be successful themselves as well as you.
